A shaded and colored image (i.e. terrain is enhanced) of varied terrain from the Shuttle Radar Topography Mission. This shows elevation model of New Zealand's Alpine Fault running about 500 km (300 mi) long. The escarpment is flanked by a vast chain of hills between the fault and the mountains of New Zealand's Southern Alps. Northeast is towards the top.

Topography is the study of the forms and features of land surfaces.

- Topography

Terrain or relief (also topographical relief) involves the vertical and horizontal dimensions of land surface.

- Terrain

Landforms together make up a given terrain, and their arrangement in the landscape is known as topography.

- Landform

Topography in a narrow sense involves the recording of relief or terrain, the three-dimensional quality of the surface, and the identification of specific landforms; this is also known as geomorphometry.

- Topography

Land surface objects, or landforms, are definite physical objects (lines, points, areas) that differ from the surrounding objects.
